For the past two years I have been tracking my experience and daily events as they transform from short-term memories into long-term memories. I am interested in my everyday experiences and the seemingly insignificant moments that I have lived and discarded.

Like women of past generations, I want to honor these moments for the role that they play and the impact that they have on my ever-changing present moment. Tracking these events through paint, digital video, audiotape, and embroidery, I have been able to hold on to a little longer, understand a little better, and have physical evidence of, my existence.
